I have over 15 years of experience working with adults and youth on issues related to depression, anxiety,  and trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,  which are evidence based therapies that have been found to effectively support healing from trauma, improve distress tolerance and increase healthy emotional and behavioral regulation.  I also have extensive experience working with parents on improving their parenting skills and better managing oppositional behaviors while also creating a more nurturing and supportive relationship with their child(ren).    
I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) which has been found to be effective in treating trauma and supporting better emotional and behavioral regulation in youth.  In addition, I am trained in  Child Parent Relationship Therapy, an evidence based therapy that teaches parents how to be play therapists with their child(ren) ages 3-8, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, a parent coaching therapy that is one of most effective evidence-based treatments for addressing severe behavior management problems in young children available today.  
I have a passion for helping individuals and families to find and foster their power to create their own happiness, effectively heal and meet personal goals.  If I can support you in better meeting your own personal and/or familial goals I would be honored to be part of your journey.
